    The film is bold stroke that hopes to push Romanian society forward by staring into the dismal failures of its recent past.

    A clever, ingeniously animated film filled with many shining moments.
    • 94 Metascore
    • 100 Ken Fox
    It can hardly be called a children's film, but a masterpiece of feature-film animation for all ages.

    Builds so gradually you probably won't realize it's a near-masterpiece until it's over, but there are hints along the way.

    Amalric is extraordinary, creating a character literally without moving a muscle.

    The film could easily be reduced to a parable of post-Communist Eastern Europe, but the allegory digs deeper into the very order of things, exemplified by 17th-century musicologist Andreas Werckmeister's arbitrary imposition of a "tempered" tonal system over naturally occurring tunings.

    A marvelously entertaining, deeply moving treatment of a highly controversial practice: female genital mutilation.

    Not only is it a reintroduction to a fascinating culture that has survived 4,000 years in a remote and most inhospitable climate, but it's also the first film ever directed by an Inuit filmmaker and featuring an all-Inuit cast.

    Denis dispenses with most of Melville's hefty Christian symbolism in favor of the story's other great theme -- repressed homoerotic desire.

    The accents are thick and the soundtrack noisy, but even as the screen explodes in chaos, Greenglass maintains a solid grip on the story.
    • 90 Metascore
    • 100 Ken Fox
    One of the most harrowing, viscerally upsetting films ever made.
    • 90 Metascore

    Never less than gripping.

    The French-language voice cast is first-rate, although the film will also be released in the U.S. in an English-language version featuring Sean Penn, Iggy Pop and Gena Rowlands in addition to Deneuve and Mastroianni.

    It can be funny, but the humor is too often based in stereotypical perceptions of Asians (they're short, they're laughably polite, they eat weird food), and Coppola shamelessly invites us to laugh along with Murray's character, who, believe it or not, thinks it's hilarious when his hosts get their "r"s and "l"s switched.

    Rarely have six hours spent doing ANYTHING seemed so rewarding.

    A tense and tightly plotted fictional thriller is based on real tactics used by the Stasi -- East Germany's secret police force -- to spy on and interrogate their own citizens.

    The film runs 95 minutes, and you'll be holding your breath for most of them.

    The anger that fuels Ferguson's film is felt in nearly every frame.

    For once, Carrey is more than merely tolerable. He's actually good, and the film that ebbs and flows around him is something you won't soon forget.

    This is sentimentality of the best kind, a touching display of male bonding amid terror and aching loneliness worthy of Howard Hawks at his finest.
    • 88 Metascore
    • 88 Ken Fox
    Focusing strictly on stripped-down performances of great music and the charming chemistry between the two leads, it's a perfectly realized yet unassuming movie that deserves to find a big audience.

    • 80 Ken Fox
    This mordantly funny, emotionally piquant depiction of post-adolescent angst also has its roots in the graphic novel format.
    • 88 Metascore
    • 100 Ken Fox
    Actor-turned-writer Dan Futterman's smart, subtle screenplay, which explores both Capote's determination to turn murder into literature and the deeply troubling questions he raised in the process.

    Look carefully at that final scene; few happy endings have ever felt so downbeat.

    A small comic masterpiece that dares to deal with that of which many Sicilians dare not speak: the Mafia.

    Japanese auteur Hirokazu Kore-eda's most accessible film to date is also his most wrenching.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 100 Ken Fox
    Throughout this raw, often brilliant drama, the Dardennes refuse to judge these deeply flawed characters. They instead maintain a moral objectivity that ultimately leaves room for the possibility of redemption, no matter how dire the sins committed.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 60 Ken Fox
    Simple but deeply touching documentary.

    This exceptional film features some of the most beautiful cinematography ever seen on film, in service of some of the most horrible images imaginable.
